How to Write Better Food with Cassandra Khaw
Sunday, December 17, 9:30-11:30 AM, Pacific time.
There’s an art to food writing. Anyone who has read a professional restaurant review can tell you that. We react viscerally to descriptions of food. Our mouths water, our minds color with tastes we can almost experience. In fiction, this can be used to enrich world-building, and to further blur the lines between the reader and the text.
Join Cat and award-winning game writer, author, tech journalist Cassandra Khaw for a session where we will discuss food writing, the sensualities of taste, how to incorporate and interpret our understanding of food, and how all this can be used to shape one’s stories.
Classes are taught online via Google hangouts and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required.
Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues).
To register for this class, send an email with the following details:
- The email address that you use for Google stuff
- Which class or classes and the dates
- Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, or some other means.
Upon receiving that, I will send you an invoice.
Important! Remember every class has several free Plunkett scholarships for students who could not otherwise afford the cost. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost, mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less.
